Meet Dallas he deserves the best home ever, because he is welshie Great!!

Dallas is a sweet, easy going 9 year old who gets along well with other dogs. Dallas first came to WTCARES  several years ago from a breeding kennel. He was placed with an older couple and since then the lady has passed away and now the husband needs to go into an assisted living facility. Dallas had been their well loved companion but now needs a new home. Dallas is what I refer to as a “bubba.” He is happy anywhere and pleased to see everyone. Dallas is in Tennessee . Contact Lyn Hollis at hollishaven@aol.com or 731-584-6530.

Meet Army brat Thor. Thor just turned seven years old and has been an army brat all his life. Thor is dog aggressive so some on the places they have lived have been better for him than others. Places where people left their dogs run off lead make his walks very difficult. Thor is very smart and is well trained to do many commands and has enjoyed barn hunt as well as other dog sports. Thor needs a big yard where he can run and play ball with his people. An adult home with terrier experience would be best but this boy has a lot of love to give. Thor is in Tennessee.

Fergus was  getting beat-up by a girl….really

He is a sweet boy who loves to sit on or right beside you.  As soon as my husband sits in his chair, Fergus is across the room pouncing on him!  He has some joint stiffness and sometimes needs to be lifted up or down if he has been still for a while, but some glucosamine each morning helps him.  He can jump up a lot but if he can’t, he will just look at you with his big eyes and tail wagging and wait for you to get him.  We try to lift him under his tummy to avoid his joints.  We have, on occasion, inadvertently hurt his joints and he let us know with a cry.  He loves tennis balls and is great at running after them!  The beginning of the summer his skin got very dry and itchy and our vet said that it was an outdoor allergy of some kind – she gave him some antibiotic and it has cleared up beautifully with no return.  He takes salmon oil in his breakfast to help his skin and we have some special shampoo for him in case it happens again.  He sleeps either on his bed, the floor, on laundry, the couch, a chair he has claimed as his own, or anywhere near us – his preference is in the bed !  We have 2 children – a boy who is 12 and a daughter who is 10 and they love Fergus because he loves loving anytime!

A couple of things we have learned about Fergus – he loves to go for walks, you can’t try to move him when asleep – he is fine once awake, but doesn’t like to be startled, he is a great guard dog with a fierce bark, we have spoiled him rotten giving him fake cheese with his glucosamine every morning and in his food (sorry!) (we use Krogers PSSST brand of cheese slices and shred cheese as it is mostly made from oil rather than milk).

We have recently found a local source of food which has nothing he is allergic to, and is much cheaper than the one he was initially on.  I have enclosed a picture of the food, and a copy of his food allergy results as well as a cute picture of him in the car.  He didn’t like car rides when he arrived but now cries in the morning trying to get the kids to get ready faster so he can go in the car to take them to school.

We truly are heartbroken that he has not worked out with our female (totally HER fault, she picks on him).….. he is so sweet and loving with no aggression problems or discipline problems.  He is a lovely companion and friend.

Fergus is almost 10 and is a very active little boy. He is a perfect gentlemen in the house and loves to snuggle. For his sake, we are now looking for an only dog home preferably with access to water and a fenced in yard. Fergus is currently staying with his family until the perfect home can be found. Please contact Brad Taylor at 720.309.6634 or Lyn Hollis at Hollishaven@aol.com or 731-584-6530for more information about this little guy.

He would make the perfect companion for a family with children 10 and up and without other pets.
